What impressed you positively?

"the friendly attitude of the admissions committee, interviewing <5 candidates at a time, informal Q&A session during orientation, upbeat attitude of the 4 dental students i met, the PBL system, the "societies", plethora of opportunities to research" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"nothing, really, against HSDM. just wish boston was cheaper to live in and wish it was more feasible to have a car while in school. wish student housing (Vanderbuilt Hall) was more like an "apartment" rather than a dorm like other graduate school housing at other schools" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"SDN members are grossly misinformed about HSDM. thought it was a solid program and the opportunity for growth seems plentiful. i am not worried that i won't be good "clinically" once i graduate." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"very positive experience. wasn't expecting much based on the feedback on SDN, but within the first hour of orientation, i realized i had believed a lot of incorrect information. thought the clinic was adequate. the preclinic was old, but i have yet to see a "nice" preclinic on any of the tours i've been on. HSDM has a completely different approach to learning (PBL) than i'm accustomed to, but i think this strategy could be great for me" Report Response
